Ghostpoet

Obaro Ejimiwe, who hails from London, is more widely known as Ghostpoet. At Explore the North he will captivate you with his enchanting poetical lyrics. The Briton considers his music a way of purely expressing himself and a medium for conveying his stories. While beats played a strong role in his early work, he has currently developed into an act backed by an entire band. His latest album is brimming with offbeat, addictive guitar licks, a bare driving bass, and especially the dark flow of the immediately recognisable low narrative tones of Obaro. His wide-ranging interests and sources of inspiration make him difficult to categorise. Just check out his session with Jools Holland below!
